Haydn’s musical portrait of the mystery of Creation comes alive in the magnificent interior and acoustics of the renowned Grote Kerk with the Netherlands Radio Chamber Philharmonic. Although a musical depiction of the Book of Genesis, Haydn’s Creation is bold, daring, and dramatic from the arresting first notes of the Representation of Chaos.. Bordering on the operatic, even after hundreds of years, this work commands attention as on of the great choral masterpieces. “When I think upon my God, my heart is so full of joy that notes dance and leap from my pen”.
